A cracking good thriller, tense and unpredictable - Richard and Judy Book Club
This crime novel is excellent at unexpected twists - Richard and Judy Book Club
A stunning debut
A slick, stylish debut. And one that certainly got under my skin
This is a corker: twisty, tricksy and, on occasion, seriously scary - Observer
I absolutely loved it. One of the best crime novels - not just debuts - I've read for ages
An impressive debut... The book's central theme is domestic violence, which Hilary handles unflinchingly with force and passion. DI Rome is an appealing creation - The Times
So brilliantly put together, unflinching without ever being gratuitous and I love the way Sarah writes - every other page has a line I wish I'd thought of myself. It's the best crime debut I've ever read and deserves to be MASSIVE
